CVLS is the largest pro bono organization in the United States. CVLS has no political agenda or affiliation. CVLS is supported by Chicago's leading law firms, foundations, and corporations. CVLS volunteers and staff attorneys represent low-income Chicagoans with a wide variety of (mostly) civil matters. We help individuals, not causes. While much of our work involves litigation, we also handle administrative and non-litigation matters. Types of cases we accept include divorce, adult and minor guardianships, adoption, tort defense, collection defense, bankruptcy, and landlord-tenant. Last year more than 3,000 volunteers represented more than 18,000 clients.
CVLS uses 175% Federal Poverty guideline as a starting point in identifying our clientele who includes Chicago’s working poor. We do not represent individuals with fee-generating cases.
